Napoleon hills Keys to Success- Adversity Becomes a Blessing

"Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure." Napoleon Hill

When defeat over takes you, you cannot spend your time counting your losses. You have to save it to count your assets and gains. You will then realize they are greater than any loss you have suffered.

Essay from Emerson
A fever, a mutilation, a cruel disappointment, a loss of wealth, a loss of friends, seems at the moment unpaid loss, and unpayable. But the sure years reveal the deep remedial force that underlies all facts. The death of a dear friend, spouse, brother, lover, which seemed nothing but privation somewhat later assumes the aspect of a guide or genius; for it commonly operates revolution in our way of life, terminates an epoch of infancy or of youth which was waiting to be closes, breaks up a wanted occupation, or a household, or style of living, allows the formation of new ones more friendly to the growth of character.
It permits or constrains the formation of new acquaintances, and the reception of new influences that prove of first importance to the next years; and the man or woman who would have remained a sunny garden flower, with no room for its roots and too much sunshine for its head, by the falling of the walls and the neglect of the gardener is made the banyan of the forest, yielding shade and fruit to wide neighborhoods of man.

Time is preserves seeds of equal benefit that hides within a loss. The best way to begin looking for a seed is within a loss is now.  Begin to examine defeats within your pasts, and try and pick out the seed of success in each one. At times the defeat seems to unbearable and at first you cannot think straight and begin searching for the seed of success within every failure. But now you know this wisdom, you are ready to look at every hardship that comes your way in a new light.  Take each defeat, and figure out how you can make it a success or what you learned from it. Mistakes and failures teach us, that's the seed, and success is what you do with that knowledge.
